Have you thought about purchasing a life membership?  For a one time fee you can make sure that you will always remain a member of the Scottish Rite, and your investment will continue to support the Valley when you pass on as we only use the income from the life membership fund.  This also protects you against any future dues increases.  The Chart below shows the amount by age.

From the General Secretary (May 2018)

For those that may not know me, my name is Gregg Hall and I am the new General Secretary.  I would first like to say that we all owe Brother Hank Vlcek, 32° KCCH  huge debt of gratitude, for his service to the Valley for the last 4 years.  Brother Hank had to rebuild our corporate knowledge that we lost with the sudden passing of Brother Rowan.  He has spent countless hours working for all of us to make things work better.  We as an organization are better for his service.


Now I would like to thank the Valley for trusting me to assume this important position.  It will take me a little bit to get up to speed and to learn all the things that need to be done to make the Valley run smoothly.  As we move forward, I am sure that there will be some changes in the way things are done, hopefully to make improvements.  Remember the office is always open, so stop in, or call, my numbers are in the officer list, or email me at  I am looking forward to serving the Valley and getting to know many of you that I have not had the opportunity to meet.

This is a hard article for me to write. As a number of you know, I will be resigning my office as your General Secretary effective April 23 and moving to Arizona. I never sought this office, but when circumstances called, I was more than willing to step up and give it my all. The first 6 months were a ‘trial by fire’, as I had no textbook or mentor to guide me, but with the encouragement of Ill Ken and many others, I finally got the knack of what needed to be done and how to do it. I especially want to thank Angela Athans for all her work in managing the office. I couldn’t have done it without her. But - my greatest joy over the last four years has been knowing that every day when I came to work, I will be spending my time working on things that will help my Brothers. No other job I have ever had has been so personally satisfying! I will greatly miss all my Brothers in the Valley of San Jose, but will take with me many fond memories! THANK YOU ALL for your love and support over the last four years.

Fraternally, HANK VLCEK, General Secretary
